Temporary Closure of Hollybank and Modified Hours at Avonlea

To Our Valued Clients,

Our top priority is to provide exceptional care to our patients while safeguarding our staff and our community. At this time, we are temporarily closing our Milton location, Hollybank Animal Hospital, and we will be modifying our business hours at our Mississauga location, Avonlea Animal Hospital, where we remain available to see you and your pets for essential veterinary health care services.

This is a precautionary measure and there has been NO KNOWN COVID-19 EXPOSURE. Dr. Rosely has developed a mild fever and we have elected to have the staff which recently worked closely with her to also self-isolate for 14 days as a preventative measure.

Hollybank Animal Hospital will be closed effective this evening, March 31, 2020 at 7:00pm for 14 days. We will reopen April 15th, 2020 at 8:00am. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Our Mississauga location, Avonlea Animal Hospital, will remain open during this period to continue to service our clients and patients. Our staff will be contacting you to reschedule any appointments or procedures that were scheduled during this period.

Our hours of operation at Avonlea Animal Hospital for the next 14 days will be as follows:

·       Monday: 9a-5p

·       Tuesday: 10a-6p

·       Wednesday: 9a-5p

·       Thursday: 10a-6p

·       Friday: 9a-5p

·       Saturday and Sunday: closed

We trust that you will understand our cautious approach to this matter and we thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Call us at 905-785-6966 if you have questions or need to schedule an appointment.
